My 2015 race programme in the G55 will be announce in the coming months once we have finalised our plans.”

In all the races we have competed in this year, in Ginettas, histories and the supercar challenge we have only had one DNF that was down to the car, and that was a gearbox component failure and totally out of our control. We as a team are proud of this record and look to continue this in style at Silverstone.“
A special livery has been designed for this car for the LIVE television races on ITV4 by design consultant Chris Warner. “After direction by the team and driver this cubism style / modern disruptive naval livery was developed in our 3D environment ensure the best possible design from every angle.
